Here is a freshly dug coyote den just feet away from Bass River on what is now known as the Indian Lands. Now that’s a Cape Cod coyote that knows where to build a waterfront home. Which was, for the record, a southern exposure. You can see the water of a small cove in the background.
Coyotes move an impressive amount of dirt when digging a den. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but that mound of dirt is like 6 feet high! The entrance hole measures about 18 inches across. The coyotes are getting ready to have their pups and will have multiple denning sites in case one is compromised.
